1) Script Title: Ulitmate Fade in Slide Show

2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex14/fadeinslideshow.htm

3) Describe problem: I am using the latest version of the slideshow and the stunichols pro drop down menu here http://www.stunicholls.com/menu/pro_dropdown_1.html

you can see it here: http://www.ethicalhost.ca/aboutpureair/index.php

I have tried adjusting a z-index here or there but really cant quite figure it out. If anyone has any ideas that would be incredibly helpful!

Hi John,

thanks so much for your reply. I gave that a try but it did not seem to change anything?

SO i tried playing around a bit more with it. I noticed it sems like that code you mentioned should be in the surrounding div tag and the div called HEADER surrounds the menu div, so when i applied the z-index code as

#header, #header * {
z-index: 1000000!important;

it seems to work and just wanted to check with you that this should be ok to do. I had to take out the position element as it messes up the entire header since i've used absolute positioning on the banner elements.

Clear your browser's cache and what I wrote should work. But as long as you have a solution that works for you, I won't complain. It's fine to do as long as it doesn't mess anything else up in any of your target browsers.

thanks a lot for your help! I did actually clear my cache and tried it again but it only works using the header for me..

again thanks a ton
